We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
Scientists from the JRC and US Environmental Protection Agency examined how and to what extent mathematical models of biological organisms are used in toxicology, and identified a number of challenges that need to be overcome for wider use and regulatory acceptance of these non-animal approaches.
A study on targeted alpha therapy of prostate cancer conducted by JRC Karlsruhe and University Hospital Heidelberg has won the 2017 Marie Curie Award of the European Association of Nuclear Medicine (EANM). The prestigious award recognizes the best study out of 2058 contributions submitted to the 2017 Annual Meeting of the EANM.
